Whistleblower Retaliation

Federal and state whistleblower laws protect employees from retaliatory firing if they report the employer’s allegedly illegal activities to the appropriate state or federal agency.

The whistleblower, or Qui Tam laws, permit individuals to bring suit on behalf of the government and are designed to encourage the reporting of fraud and abuse. The laws provide protections for employees and specifically prohibits retaliation for the reporting of corporate fraud, government waste or abuse, making certain complaints to government agencies, reporting illegal harassment or discrimination and cooperating with law enforcement investigations.
